1. General Optimization Advice

Netherlight Crucible

Optimizing through the Netherlight Crucible is straightforward; you are offered 2 initial paths, Shadow and Holy, and you should determine your path contingent on the following suggestions.

When deciding which path to take, compare the sum of the item level values of the tier 2 traits and the relics (listed in the sections below) to determine which the optimal path is.

2. Tier 2 Upgrade Priority

  1. Master of Shadows Icon Master of Shadows (+~4 item levels);
  2. Light Speed Icon Light Speed (+3 item levels);
  3. Shocklight Icon Shocklight and Murderous Intent Icon Murderous Intent (+2.5 item levels)
  4. Refractive Shell Icon Refractive Shell (+2 item levels);
  5. Infusion of Light Icon Infusion of Light and Secure in the Light Icon Secure in the Light (+1.5 item levels)
  6. Light's Embrace Icon Light's Embrace (+1 item level).

It is worth noting that Shadowbind Icon Shadowbind and Chaotic Darkness Icon Chaotic Darkness are both worth 2.5 item levels as well, but only when doing DPS, and so they are not recommended.

3. Tier 3 Upgrade Priority

The Tier 3 upgrades are identical to the relic priority found in our Artifact Traits and Relics page, however, they have been relisted here for your convenience.

  1.  Icon Persistence (+5 item levels with Tier 19 Set Bonuses, +2.5 item levels with Tier 20 Set Bonuses)
  2.  Icon Knowledge of the Ancients (+2.5 item levels)
  3.  Icon Grovewalker (+2 item levels)
  4.  Icon Infusion of Nature (+1.3 item levels)
  5. Eternal Restoration Icon Eternal Restoration (+1 item level)
  6.  Icon Essence of Nordrassil (+0.7 item levels)
